PALLET DISTRIBUTION

Hickmans of Kidderminster is a member shareholder of Palletforce Plc one of the fastest growing and most successful networks in the UK. This membership, of the pallet network, enables us to offer customers the flexibility of a complete package, from one pallet requiring a timed delivery in Scotland, to a full load delivered in Cornwall.

In conjunction with the pallet network, we offer the following:

NEXT DAY DELIVERY

Offers next day guaranteed delivery service to mainland UK destinations (excluding Scottish Highlands).

PREMIUM SERVICE

Deliveries that are time critical can be upgraded to either AM delivery, timed (any specified time between 10am Ė 4pm) or Saturday AM.

ECONOMY DELIVERY

A reliable delivery service operating on 2-3 day service to mainland UK destinations provides a cost effective haulage solution for non urgent requirements.  Economy delivery is also available to off shore islands on a 3-5 day service.

COLLECTIONS

Consignments can be collected from anywhere in the UK and returned to you on a next day or economy service. Collections are also available on a third party basis, for example, a pallet can de collected from Scotland and delivered to Ireland without coming back to the customer, this not only cost effective but can also save valuable time.

BOOK IN

Deliveries on an economy service can be booked in for delivery to ensure they meet your customersí goods in requirements and can be particularly useful for deliveries to addresses that are not always manned.

TAIL LIFT DELIVERY

Collections and deliveries can be made on vehicles fitted with tail lifts in situations where forklift trucks are not available; you just need to pre-advise us.
Our standard comprehensive price list for palletised freight is available on request.
